In 1914, together with his friends Paul Klee and Louis Moilliet, August Macke travelled to Tunisia, a journey that proved to be of considerable importance for determining the role of light in his works. "View of an alley in Tunis" expresses an exotic atmosphere, full of brightness and warmth. The landscape is represented with spots of colour, as well as the figures that appear abstract and not at all outlined. Macke's style expresses emotions, rather than representing an objective reality: for this reason, the shapes appear distorted and the colours used are unusual compared to the ordinary. In the work we can find different pictorial techniques, styles that Macke got to know and from which he took inspiration during his innumerable travels in Italy, France, Germany and Holland: the harmony of the tones and the dynamism of the reflexes strongly recall Cubism; the primitive style and the "stains of colour" remind us of the Impressionist technique; Expressionism for the exotic and abstract themes dealt with. In August Macke the expressionist poetics of the "ugly" seems to have never been born. Harmony, happiness and feeling shine through all his beautiful watercolours.
